Well….the prompt for Day 6 of the 31 Day Five Minute Free Write Challenge is:
Heal. Whole. How I got heal from whole I do not know. But then again, I guess you can’t be whole unless you heal.
I had another verse in mind that applies to our country’s need for healing. But upon finding out someone is in the middle of planning her husband’s funeral, I decided to focus on healing of the deceased and a widows healing.
The King James Bible is being used today because of the beautifully written verses on healing I found while doing my research.
Today’s verse speaks healing to me because when your spouse passes away, his light breaks forth in heaven and his health springs forth speedily. What he did not have here on earth, God speedily gives him in heaven.
The righteousness of your spouse – His faith in Jesus Christ – goes before him when he moves to heaven. Upon arriving in heaven he gets to see the glory of God. What a reward!
As for widows, one morning light will break forth through your grief, healing it. Grief is darkness and darkness will never overcome the light of your faith in Jesus Christ. That light will precede you while living your part in God’s story and you will see God’s glory here on earth.
What a reward, what a joy-filled reward!
